Finally, after many months and plowing through the holiday slough of games that were released, our favorite Aussie dubbed 'Yahtzee' takes a stab to the groin of Gears of War 2. The review isn't really detailed, mostly focusing on campaign...if he had played multiplayer or even gave a care, he wouldn't have liked it so much. Yes, he actually enjoyed a game this time around, but that doesn't mean he can't skin it over a pit of flaming zombies.
The main complaints he conjured are the usual things other critics have pointed out: the testosterone lead atmosphere, belligerent A.I., and the lack of a solid story path that is in-depth. To this, he found himself not enjoying the emotional aspect between Dom and Maria, which I suppose felt either flat, over exaggerated, or just plain old screwed up in its execution.
The review is enjoyable, though it may not be WPA due to its vulgar nature.
And off I am again for another long absence...nah, just joking. I have a few articles set to be posted next week.
